What do you think of Sheriff Joe Arpaio?
Next August, Arpaio is up for re-election and we have a chance to get him booted out.
On Friday, I had a really productive Skype with the man running against Arpaio, Lt. Mike Stauffer, and his campaign manager, West Kenyon. With Arpaio's margin of election victory way down since his early landslides and him creating so many enemies, including the Hispanic community, I think Mike has a great chance of winning.
Mike’s horrified by the jail conditions described in my book, Hard Time, and he intends to change them and to make the jail a safer environment for staff and inmates.
I want to help Mike defeat Arpaio. Apparently, Arpaio has spread the word in America that his support overseas is overwhelmingly positive, including from the UK public. I don’t believe that is the case. I urge anyone with an opinion on Arpaio to LIKE Mike’s Facebook page and post your opinion as a comment (underneath Mike’s latest wall post - you have to LIKE the page to be able to leave comments), stating your first name and where in the world you are located. Here’s the link:
If you are not on Facebook then please post your comment to this blog entry. Your comments may be used to counter Arpaio’s claim that he is worshipped globally.
Thanks for taking the time to help get Arpaio removed from office!
